7 of the Best Family Food Hampers
A well thought-out, tailored hamper created by yours truly is a great gift to give the entire family.
Custom hampers allow you to decide what goes inside, meaning you can ensure there is something to suit everyone’s tastes – regardless of whether they have a sweet tooth, prefer savoury goods or enjoy the two! Asides from being tailored to the family in question, making up your own hamper can also be a lot of fun.
This is also a great option for those on a budget – as they can spend as little or as much as desired. For best results, you may wish to choose an array of fancy food items that can’t be found in your local supermarket.
A breakfast family food hamper is an alternative to the traditional hamper and one that is ideal for Christmas morning.
Freshly baked all butter croissants, bucks fizz, moreish muffins, strawberry preserve, oak smoked salmon, breakfast tea, Italian coffee and pink grapefruit are just a few of the items you can expect to find in a breakfast hamper.
For those with a sweet tooth, an indulgence hamper is a must!
Brimming with deluxe chocolates, in the shape of creamy caramels, sea salt truffles, crème brulée, homemade cookies, and drinking chocolate – it’s certain to satisfy the taste buds.
A hamper containing items that you wouldn’t normally find at the local supermarket is a welcome treat.
Inside, you’ll find the likes of spicy salami, chilli olive oil, Sicilian green olives, pecorino Romano, truffle cheese and prosecco.
Cheese and wine hampers
A hamper filled to the brim with an array of wine and cheese goods makes for the perfect family food hamper. From creamy variants such as Brie and blue cheese to hard options including mature cheddar and Manchego – there is something to suit all.
To complement the many cheeses and wines, such hampers contain the likes of savoury caramelised onion chutney, oatcakes, port, grapes, quince jelly and flatbreads.
This traditional British treat is an ideal option for a family hamper, as it’s something to be enjoyed with loved ones.
Brimming with breakfast tea, marmalade with Scotch whiskey, strawberry jam and chocolate and raspberry biscuits – this family food hamper will allow you to bring high tea to your very own home.
Themed family food hampers, such as ‘the best of British’, ‘tapas’, ‘chocolate’, ‘coffee’, ‘high-tea’, ‘cheese and wine’, ‘Christmas’ or ‘alcohol-free’ gift baskets are a good choice for those who wish to tailor a gift to the recipient’s exact tastes.
If the recipients are on a health kick, or simply prefer soft beverages to alcoholic drinks, an alcohol-free hamper is a popular option.
Such hampers contain the likes of pomegranate and elderflower pressé, rose lemonade, farmhouse pâté, caramelised onion chutney, oatcakes and spicy peanuts. This hand-wrapped basket, which is tied with a beautiful ribbon, is an ideal gift for the entire family.
A beautiful wicker tray brimming with fresh and sweet exotic fruit, comprising kiwi, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, blueberries, melon and grapes, is a great idea for a family food hamper. This appetising, yet healthy fruit basket is a generous way to replenish a loved one’s fruit bowl.
